It turns out Arsenal fans aren’t the only ones who aren’t too hot on Oliver Giroud right now.
The Gunners fans could barely hold back their desperation throughout the summer transfer window, as their club were repeatedly linked with Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema, who would’ve effectively replaced Giroud as the club’s first-choice striker.
And now Giroud is under pressure on the international scene too, as he was booed and jeered by a section of France’s fans during their friendly win over Serbia on Monday night.
The tall frontman was subbed after an hour by manager Didier Deschamps after a lumbering and disappointing display. Giroud has now scored just once this season in all competitions.
When asked about the crowd’s reaction in the mix zone afterwards, Giroud refused to comment or be interviewed.
A brace from Blaise Matuidi gave France the win on the night, cancelling Newcastle striker Aleksandar Mitrovic’s reply in the 2-1 victory.
Giroud’s next chance to find the net will come on Saturday, when the Gunners take on Stoke at the Emirates.
